Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter was taken out of last night's game after his inning ending ground out in the bottom of the 6th. The injury is being called "left ankle stiffness". According to Joe Girardi, Jeter "woke up a little sore yesterday, and it was sore to run today. We noticed for the first time when he was running tonight that the had a little hitch, and it seemed to get worse and worse, and that's why we got him out of there" (yankees.com). Girardi seems to be looking to keep Jeter out of the lineup tonight, but as PeteAbe said, Jeter is a tough guy to keep out of the lineup. The strange thing is that Jeter wasn't available to talk to the media after the game. I'm no doctor, but he didn't look that injured. Then again, Jeter has downplayed rather serious injuries before so he can play. My guess is that he won't be out for more than a couple days...
